Curiosity find building blocks for life on Mars




Curiosity has found some evidence that life on Mars was indeed possible in the distant past. Although there are some clues, the Mars probe has been able to deliver no evidence of life on the red planet.

Curiosity on Mars found organic molecules containing the building blocks for life, says space agency NASA. In molecules Curiosity pulled out powder from a rock that NASA employees have called Cumberland, is including carbon and hydrogen. NASA mentions that organic molecules could indicate life, but that also can exist without life ever existed on Mars.

In addition to the organic molecules, the Mars-rover also measured at a peak in the concentration of methane in the atmosphere. Early 2014 was seven billion on the particles in the atmosphere of methane, ten times more than in other periods.

Both directions NASA infers that “favorable conditions” have been on Mars to support life. Curiosity landed on Mars in 2012 and includes a mission to discover if life ever has been possible on the red planet. Moreover, the Mars rover measurements must do to prepare for a mission to Mars with people; which must take place somewhere in the next thirty years.
